Hughes Brothers Book Eli

Albert and Allen Hughes (“From Hell”) will direct the postapocalyptic Western “The Book of Eli” for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Gary Whitta’s script centers on a lone hero who must fight his way across the wasteland of postapocalyptic America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving the future of humanity.

Joel Silver will produce and the hope is for filming to begin before the New Year.
